Another Update

Michael: Is still working at University of Phoenix as an enrollment counselor, and is doing a great job. He is playing softball and being an incredibel father and husband.
ME: I was just offered a position as an enrollment counselor at the University of Phoenix, which I have accepted. I will begin training March 30. I am playing soccer and enjoying being a mother to the best boys in the world. Both boys will be watched by a lady named Julie who also has a two year old. I am so glad I didn't have to resort to daycare.
Beau: It is his birthday today. He is officially 2. He is being a wonderful big brother to Gage, and is always so concerned about everyone else. He is going through a stage where whenever he wants something he always makes sure that mom, dad, or Gage has some also. His vocabulary and conversation has improved so much within the last two weeks. He goes in for his well check up tomorrow so, I will have to post his weight and percentage.
Gage: Is our little angel. He is so easy going. His third tooth broke through and we are now about to have a fourth one. At his 6 month checkup he weighed 18 lbs. 7 oz. He is in the 58% for weight. He is 27.75 in. tall and is in the 83% for height. His head circumfrence is only in the 13%, but he is still so smart. He has already passed the crawling stage and is now pulling himself up to stand on everything. I can't believe that he will be 7 months old on Thursday. We also just found out that Gage is going in for Surgery on March 30th. I will have to take before and after pictures. So please keep him in your prayers.
Family: We are doing so well and are a very happy family. We are leaving to go out of town on Thursday and will return the following Friday.

To Big, To Fast

So the last two days have been quite interesting. Besides Gage crawling every he has decided to get a tooth a day. He has been running a temp. of 101-102 for the past two days. Now not only does he have both bottom teeth, his top ones will be coming through any day. What can I say the teething process is miserable for both parties. He growing up to fast. This morning he pushed himself to a sitting position. So with a little help (from me. I just spread his feet a little farther apart so he would have better balance.) he was able to sit and play with some balls. Time has flown so fast. He is already 6 months old. I wish he could stay little. He is the best baby in the whole world.

My boys are a blessing.

Okay so a quick update. Gage has officially started crawling as of 3 days ago. His first tooth finally broke through, and his gums are still swollen with three more awaiting their turn. Beau has quite an appetite lately, and we are really going to put forth an effort to try and potty break him. I started before and he was going then when he got sick, let's just say it was better to keep a diaper on him. Life is great and I am truly blessed to have such great little boys. I am loving every minute watching them interact and play together. I can't imagine life without them. They are so precious.

Suns Game

For christmas Michael got tickets to go to the suns game. It was so enjoyable to actually go out and do something just the two of us. I can't remember the last we went on a date. I owe Tina big time for watching my boys until midnight. It's a bummer that the Suns lost, but I had so much fun. This was my first professional basketball game and it will definetly be one to remember.

(Thanks babe for taking me.)

Catching Up

Okay, so I know I have been a complete slacker when it comes to blogging, but I am going to try and keep up with things. One of my New Year's resolutions is to get my homework done on time rather than procrastinate until the very last minute. I am also trying to have a dinner prepared everynight, so between that, the boys, and trying to run errands and keep the house in order, I'm going to try and add this to the list. So here are a few pictures to catch me up.

Dinner Time

Messiest part of the day.

Beau wearing sexy shoes. Doesn't it makes his legs look good :) Pretty good for a little boy, although Mike would kill me if he saw this!

Family picture at Nikki's wedding.

Beau loves playing hide and seek, I found him crouched down in the laundry basket.

Beau's first ice skating experience. He absolutely loved it.

New Years. Beau stayed awake all night. Gage fell asleep 45 min. before midnight or else he would have been there too. What can I say I have night owls for children.

Snow day at the zoo.

Fa La La La La!

I am so excited for Christmas and the New Year. To me Christmas isn't about getting presents anymore. I love to decorate and feel the warmth and love of the holiday's with my family. I love watching the boys get so happy over little fun things that we do. This year was our first year, having our own place to decorate. I decorated our tree, with a lot of help from some little hands. Beau's favorite thing to do is try and play baseball with the different balls on the tree. We ate cookies and listened to Christmas music and after we cleaned up our rather tremendous mess, we have been enjoying watching Christmas movies together. I just love this time of year. Here are pictures of my little helpers and the end results.

The pictures doesn't do my tree justice, I promise it looks a lot better in person. The colors are red and gold, and I decorated it with Santa's.


This year for Thanksgiving, Michael and I and the boys joined Tina's family and went to St. George for the weekend. The last time we spent Thanksgiving in Utah, was three years ago before Michael and I were even married. It was a great experience. Rhonda, had some great activities planned for us. We woke up Thanksgiving morning and it had still been raining. Needless to say that didn't stop the boys from playing a game of football. It was so cold, and we loved every minute of it. After we ate and watched some football games, we decorated gingerbread houses. Beau's ended up in the trash. He thought it was fun to decorate a piece, then eat and then throw it. The following morning, Tina and I were up very by 3:00 a.m. and headed out for an eager shopping trip. When we returned at noon, the boys all went on a four-wheeler ride and shot guns. After every one got back we went to Santa's Workshop. It was an incredible weekend. Beau and Gage enjoyed spending so much time with their grammy as Beau likes to call her. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful family. Here are a few pictures.

Beau decided to go outside all by himself. He just sat in this chair with a bottle for about 10 min.

The boys didn't watch any games, so Beau asked to watch Nemo on my computer.

Beau loves to watch movies on the computer rather than on the T.V.
Gage was so good. He barely cried on the drive up and back and only cried once while we were in Utah.

He's such a happy baby.
